You Want It When?

Wow, where did you get that? Is it something made by a guy in one of the local printshops or more of a national joke made by a parts supplier or something?
I just love ephemera.

It was printed by the "Print Shop; Jonathan Dayton Regional High School; Springfield, NJ" in the 1960's. It's actually on a 8 1/2 X 11 inch sheet and I cropped the scan so it would be more visible.

This was the print shop class that Stanley Grossman taught. I posted a short bio of him previously and its his press that now sits in my shop. I'm still in touch with him and am helping him sell some more equipment he has from his home shop. Need a paper drill or a Challenge 19 1/2" hydraulic paper cutter? Hmmm. Not in that apartment, eh?

What did you think of the "Family Affair" photo? It's one of my favorites.

Are you loving the Pearl?

It's so great that you have all this history associated with your presses and other shop stuff. I've got vague, undocumented history on mine, but I'd love to learn more.
I do love the Pearl; I'm still getting the hang of treadling and feeding but I'm getting better.
Oh, I wish I could fit a paper cutter in here, but it's not in the cards right now.

This is SO cool - I am totally going to have to read them all!

Thank you for your comment and Vandercook tip on my blog. I have never seen or used a Vandercook before so I am having some people come to help me get started here in a few weeks. I have put your note in with the other questions/help topics I want them to cover. I really appreciate you bringing it up!

It is so fun to have another letterpress buddy via my blog! Yeah!
